I always have leftover (ripened) bananas on my counter and am looking for a place for them to go. If you like granola, try this twist with the taste of bananas. Simply delicious!

Servings 5 cups


  • 1 cup cashews roughly chopped
  • 1 cup walnuts roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup almonds roughly chopped
  • 1 cup shredded coconut unsweetened
  • ½ cup pepitas or pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 medium to large bananas ripened and mashed
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix nuts, seeds, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined.
  • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until most lumps disappear. Stir in coconut oil, vanilla extract and maple syrup.
  • Pour the banana mixture over the nut mixture and stir until all nuts are coated with banana mixture.
  • Spread the granola on lined baking sheet in an even layer and bake for 30-35 minutes. About halfway through baking, gently stir the granola so it cooks evenly. Once a golden brown color is reached, remove from the oven and cool before serving.
